One reason why some children are born with birth injuries involves mothers who give birth vaginally after previously delivering a child through a cesarean section, a surgical procedure commonly known as a C-section. This is known as vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC).
While VBAC is a viable option for many mothers, there are significant risks associated with it as well. It’s critical that doctors warn women about the potential dangers and carefully monitor their health throughout their pregnancy. Unfortunately, doctors often fail to inform mothers of the risks to their baby due to a VBAC delivery.
Knowing what to do after such situations can be confusing. Even knowing what your rights are as an injury victim or family member might not be clear. That’s why it’s important to talk with an experienced birth injury attorney familiar with all the legal issues involving VBAC injuries. That’s why we want to meet with you at Goldberg & Schulkin Law Offices. Our lawyers can explain all your available legal options and which one makes the most sense for you.
Doctors need to closely monitor a woman’s health during her pregnancy for any warning signs of health problems due to VBAC. Risks women face when attempting to give birth vaginally after previously having a C-section include:
Newborn children also face a high risk of infections and brain damage due to VBAC. Whatever medical issues you’re dealing with, we want to help you get your life back on track.
You might think you don’t need a lawyer if you or your child was harmed due to the reckless or negligent behavior of medical professionals. The problem is most doctors, nurses and other health care professionals are reluctant to admit they did anything wrong because the financial stakes are often so high.
You shouldn’t have to pay for their mistakes. You deserve to be compensated for your medical bills and any other injury-related expenses. That’s why we want to meet with you. We can work with you to create a strategy that addresses your specific legal needs.
